A - Pours up a clear amber. I finger off white head that sinks into a razor thin island. S - Over ripened pears, sour apple, cider, toffee, spicy Belgian yeast. T - Sour/tart fruit-apples, a moderate spiciness, Belgian yeast, a mild tart cider shows up more and more as it rests. This beer is strange. The longer it sets the worse it gets. Even with different temperatures. It’s great right off the pour. Weird. Serving type: bottle 08-24-2010

750 ml bottle pours hazy brown with a off white head. Aroma is sweet, spice, bananas and malt. Taste is spice, yeast, malt and a touch of caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy amber with on finger of creamy head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, caramel, cereal, lemon and dust. Taste follows aroma a little too sweet.

Smells weird, orange with sweet amber malt smells. sweet breads ? I don’t know, unique. Amber with quick to settle head. Sweet malty drink. Nice to an extent.

Much better than my first experience with this brewer (Belgian Quad) but not by much. Pours a murky brown with a soda pop head, foamy then gone. The aroma was some fruit and a bit of caramel. No funk or sourness in the nose or taste. Taste was soda sweet with the same carbonation. This will be my last from this brewer.

Another bottle busted out by Deuane. A - Pours murky amber brown with a small half finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass. S - Smells of light spice, graham cracker caramel malt, candied sugar, and some dulled fruit like pears and apples. Not too bad so far. T - Starts off with a bit of candied sugar sweetness quickly giving way to a mix of graham cracker caramel malt, dulled fruit, and some light spice. A bit too thin for my liking. The finish is a mix of sweetness and light fruitiness, lingering for a short period of time. M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit thin in the feel with some lingering sweetness in the finish. O - I am not sure how old this one is but either way it was not too bad but it isn’t something I would go seeking out.

(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet malts pretty much dominate the aroma with some mild citrus and other fruit sweetness. Fruity and malty flavor at the beginning with lots of fresh fruit notes, but the flavor kind of mellows after that. Some light notes of sweetness at the end but nothing really flavorful. Dry and crisp finish.

I just noticed that this is a spring seasonal, so maybe I’m drinking this one a little too late. Nose is surprisingly malty. Some spice. Not heavily malty, but it just stuck out on the aroma. Malt dominates the flavor profile also. Again, it’s not heavy. The weight of the beer is lighter than I originally expected. The fruit comes out to play a bit. There’s notes of fruit rind and skins aplenty. In general, the beer was a bit flat in terms of flavor. Simple. Not much here. Wish I had this fresh.

22 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with thin white frosting. Nose is cantaloupe, toffee and banana pudding. Medium body with a sparkle; oily then dry. Taste is peach pit, bitter almond and parsley. Odd but alluring.

750mL thanks to MrLo. Pours a hazy strawberry gold. Large, yellow head subsides quickly with no lace. Nose is plasticy phenols with soap and air freshener. Slightly more red fruits but still not very appetizing. Taste is oddly minty, watery, very strange. Detergent water, tannic red apple skins. Lots of weird going on here. Thin palate with heavy detergent. Not a fan.
